THROUGH THE FIRE
The Journey Of Salman The PersianLearn More
Imprisoned by his father…
…betrayed by scholarly authority…
…and enslaved in a strange land:
all obstacles on the arduous Journey of Salman the Persian .
Relive the journey as Salman journeys from Persia to Syria to Arabia…
…as a Zoroastrian priest, a dedicated Christian, and finally a Companion of the Prophet Muhammad ﷺ.
Islam came to the Arabs, whereas Salman traversed from outside the Arab world searching high and low. He brought with him insight and experience strange to the Arabs of the time:
Overcome Your Own Struggles With Seeking Truth
Every path to truth is met with obstacles. Most experience just one or two, whereas Salman encountered them all.
How the Prophet ﷺ Treated Salman
Not only are there lessons for every truth seeker…
…learn how the Prophet ﷺ cared, integrated, welcomed and learned from Salman the Persian.
These are also lessons in how to care for truth seekers:
“By the One in whose Hand is my soul! If faith were on Pleiades (the stars) then men among these people would reach it.” [Tirmidhi]
